Where’s your Heaven on Earth?
Ask me that question years ago and my travel goals would have South of France, Amalfi Coast, Santorini, Seychelles, and Bali at the top of that list. Some we’ve since traveled, the rest we’re still planning.
Ask me today, a lifetime later, and I say, no doubt, it’s Hawaii.
As cliché as this tropical island may seem, it’s been a magical, meaningful place throughout my life. Hawaii was my first trip with my best friends, my first adventure with my soul mate, where we said yes, where we found out we were going to be a family, and where we recently brought our little guy for the first time.
For me, it’s the place where my heart feels at home, the air smells sweeter, and the days last as long as you wish them to. It’s not the most exotic by any means, but it’s hands down the most special.
So this week, when the crazy factor is at an all time high leading up to my company‘s NYFW event and a short work week (but a long weekend!), I turn to my trusty, paradise inspired Hawaii playlist. It drowns out the madness, slows down my day, and takes me, for just a bit, to my little piece of Heaven on Earth.
